Team Building & Coaching

Go beyond average. Build effective teams with a great spirit, by going deeper than the standard.

How does my team building work?


We first align together about the responsibility for the team building process.

This is a change process in which ownership needs to be clear in order for the next steps to be successful and motivating for the team.


We identify a specific work related topic for coaching and focus.

This supports the team-building process to become very practical and goal oriented.  

We adapt the topic as we go.


During a revealing coaching process the team gets to know itself.  Team members understand the important roles they play (or miss to play) to form one team. 

They align on their needs, beliefs and create the basis for continuous improvement.


Last but not least, we define actions to improve as a team. 

This  includes both improvement in team dynamics and relationship among team members & in the way of working and interacting with stakeholders, partners and customers outside of the team.

About Me

I’m Ioannis.
I coach teams to learn to manage the difficult in a simple way.

I help people align on the culture and atmosphere they need their relationship to have.

Leave differences behind once and for all , find commonalities and through the power of your purpose move forward to a more successful and happy life. Create healthy foundations to “flourish” together as one team.

My clients appreciate learning, tough discussions and are committed to go through the difficult in order to reach their goals.

I hold the space for my clients to slow down, emotionally and strategically, reconnect to speed up effectively.

I help organisations to practice appreciation, treat people with respect to set the foundations for innovation and high performance.

How am I contributing in a unique way?

My strongest principle is that  the heart of success are great teams. What makes them great is their ability to appreciate their social interactions and relationship. This makes them able to balance efficiency and effectiveness which is a game changer in the age of change. 

My life experience and the changes I have encountered have prepared me to cope with uncertainty naturally. I have been through significant life and business transformations  myself and that is why I can assist others in their own journeys with a great amount of empathy and undertanding. 

My resilience, adaptability, emotional intelligence, wisdom, and empathy are valuable assets that can inspire and support others who are navigating uncertain times.

My tools and practices go deeper than the standard and focus on experiencing being a team in a deep and fun way.
